Jeremy Gow has now been restoring antique furniture for some 18 years.

“I have been in business at Pitscandly Farm since 1992. Having spent nine years in different workshops in Scotland, France, Austria and Australia, I returned to start my own business at the family home near Forfar in Scotland.

Over the years I have been fascinated by the furniture I have seen and restored. Many things have happened over a lifetime of usage – pieces have been badly restored, cut down, reveneered, transformed, repolished and brasswork replaced.”

This three-day course will open your eyes to some of the mysteries.

We conserve works of art from all over Scotland, from royal palaces, stately homes, national galleries and many private clients.
